When to Change 2009 Audi A3 Quattro Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Audi A3 Quattro? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends having your 2009 Audi A3 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A3 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A3 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2009 Audi A3 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A3 Quattro? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Audi A3 Quattro engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A3 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
